America Celebrates! Quilts of Joy and Remembrance is a nationally touring exhibition of art quilts from American fiber artists, and is a joyful, diverse, and sometimes touching look at how we see ourselves as a nation. The exhibition, curated by Judith Trager, seeks to find how we as ordinary people share the threads and traditions that tie Americans together. Touching on holidays, cultural, and personal celebrations, the exhibition is a bright and colorful look at our cultural mores and how we see ourselves through our traditions. The exhibition will also feature those traditions that Americans brought with them as immigrants- Diwali from India, the Winter Solstice from Northern Europe, and Cinco de Mayo from Mexico. The artists in this exhibition are as diverse as the quilts themselves. The 57 artists come from every geographical region of the United States and represent many ethnic and cultural groups (and two are ex-patriot Americans living abroad). They have created a diverse assortment of designs commemorating occasions from personal to solemn. Each of these parts makes for a strong whole that is as diverse as the artists who contributed to the exhibition. This diversity emphasizes the unity of America and the joy that such diversity brings.
